Restored Path Detox is a place where you can recover quickly and safely.

Since alcohol is a sedative that alters your neurotransmitters, heavy drinking can change your brain’s chemistry. When you stop drinking suddenly, your brain can’t regulate itself, and that’s when uncomfortable (and sometimes life-threatening) alcohol withdrawal symptoms can begin.

But you don’t have to suffer through the alcohol detoxification process alone. Medically monitored alcohol detox is essential in planning for a healthier, more satisfying life. At Restored Path Detox in Dallas, you will emerge with a firm foundation for ongoing recovery.

Our Environment

At Restored Path Detox, we walk with you through every stage of early recovery — from medically monitored detox from alcohol to thorough and personalized continuing care planning. We understand that we are generally working with a small window of willingness and can quickly complete the entire admissions process, starting with a brief preassessment over the phone. This information helps our clinical and medical teams determine the severity of the alcohol use disorder and identify which detox methods will be the most effective. We then explore potential coverage options and set a date and time for intake.

What Are the Symptoms Of Alcohol Withdrawal?

Alcohol is a legal drug, but it carries a significant risk of addiction. If you regularly misuse alcohol and stop drinking or significantly reduce the amount of your intake, alcohol detox symptoms will emerge. The symptoms of alcohol withdrawal occur between 1 and 7 days and generally take 2 to 4 days to peak. There is no exact timeline for what you may experience.

Initially, symptoms might start relatively mild and include

  • Loss of appetite
  • Headaches
  • Profuse sweating
  • Shaky hands
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Anxiety
  • Extreme restlessness
  • Shortened temper
  • Severe agitation
  • Disorientation
  • Panic attacks
 

But alcohol withdrawal symptoms can quickly become severe and dangerous and include

  • Body Tremors
    Tremors typically begin within the first several hours after the last drink, peak between 24 and 48 hours, and are usually accompanied by increased blood pressure and elevated heart rate.
  • Alcohol Withdrawal Seizures
    These can be very unpredictable, severe, and life-threatening within 12 to 48 hours of the last drink.
  • Alcohol Hallucinosis
    Hallucinosis generally begins within the first 12 to 24 hours of the last drink and may include dissociation from reality and visual or auditory hallucinations.
  • Delirium Tremens (DTs)
    DTs typically last between 5 and 7 days and include breathing and body temperature changes, reduced blood flow to the brain, extreme confusion, disorientation, sleep disturbances, and hallucinations.
  • Suicidal Ideation
    Severe depression and thoughts of suicide may present.

How Long Does It Take to Detox From Alcohol?

There is no exact alcohol withdrawal timeline. However, it is common for alcohol withdrawal symptoms to become increasingly severe toward the end of your first 24-48 hours of detox. Different symptoms of alcohol withdrawal may come and go for the remainder of your first week in alcohol detox. You’re most at risk for life-threatening delirium tremens (DTs) during this timeframe, which could lead to aspiration pneumonia.

Thankfully, by the time you’ve completed your first week of medically monitored detox, many symptoms will begin to taper. The sophisticated alcohol detox center at Restored Path Detox helps prevent serious complications, keeps track of your health, and relieves pain.
